To    Mr Isaac Hunter at Dukesfield                                         Newcas.   13  July 1770

Sir      Today I have received by the Hexham Carrier  two pieces of Silver Bullion from Dukesfield Refinery.  One piece weighs Eight hundred & Sixty seven Ounces and a half & the other Seven hundred & fifty three and a half - you did not send a Letter of the weight etc as usual.  Pray do not let above 1000 Bings of Ore go to Allanheads Mill.  I am afraid we shall not get any Lead from thence this wet Summer & when the Summers are the dryest it is always so Late before that Lead gets to Market, that it is a Loss to Sir Walter.    I am etc    HR
